    Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller on Wednesday said he “respects” the opinion of First Nations groups, like the Anishinabek Nation, that oppose the Line 5 pipeline, but said the government has a “difference of opinion.”

    Miller went on to say his ministry would continue to “engage” with Indigenous communities on the issue of Line 5 and other issues that impact them.

    The pipeline, which serves as a vital artery for North America’s energy infrastructure, is facing a looming shutdown threat from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who set a Wednesday deadline last November that owner Enbridge has no plans to meet.
